This page applies to navigation devices that are updated using MyDrive. What software do I need to update my device?

When you buy a brand new TomTom navigation device there may already be a newer version of your map available, because we release map updates every three months.

We want to ensure that you start driving with the latest map, so if a newer version of your map is available within 90 days of the first use of your navigation device, you can download the map update for free. Make sure you get the most out of your 90 day Latest Map Guarantee by connecting your new TomTom navigation device to an internet-enabled computer straight away.
